I used a first person kill-cam mod for a while, but they still get annoying, so now I use the disable kill-cam mod. I would love for it to be an option like it is in New Vegas.

Will Beth ever make a game that doesn't require dozens of mods to fix bugs and balance issues. There is a better smithing overhaul mod on the nexus. I don't know the name of it since I'm out of town. It basically makes the smithing tree more like the other trees with the base option being weapon/armor improving with 5 increasing levels. Then it branches out to the different metals you can use.

The armor smithing and improving needs more work than fixing the spamming of daggers and bracers. I didn't spam shit to level up, I just played the game and picked up the materials along the way. I was so excited when I got smithing to 100, I immediately ran back to my house to make some dragon scale armor only to find out I didn't have enough scales to make and improve a full set of armor. I decided to look it up on the wiki to see what I needed and I would go about my business and come back when I had enough.

This is when I fin out how screwed up it is. The game, like previous games (and FO3) have a damage resistance cap of 80 or 85. The wiki people figured out what that translates to in armor rating and it's 560 ir 570 something. Any armor rating above that is useless. The glass armor I have already has a rating of over 700, so making dragon armor is pointless. I did make some anyway just to compare, and a full set, fully improved was only had 26 higher armor rating than the glass armor I already had if I fully upgrade it.

I've seen people making insane armors with 6000+ ratings using alchemy and enchanting hacks, but I guess they don't realize they're wasting their time. It would be useful to make armor with ratings higher than the 560/570 if armor degraded.
